Replacing EcoSport’s Fog Light Bulb

Fog lights are very useful in illuminating the road during weather conditions that may hamper visibility, such as heavy rains and fog. It is important to replace busted fog lights as soon as you notice them.

Removing the Instrument Cluster

The dashboard panel behind the steering wheel where key information is displayed (such as RPM, speed, fuel level, and other information) is called the instrument cluster. In this video, I’ve demonstrated how to remove the instrument cluster panel, starting with the hidden top screw, and then the two hidden bottom screws.

This information may be useful in replacing or repairing a faulty instrument cluster panel, or in removing the panel if you plan on painting it to match your choice of interior theme or color.

Removing the Signal and Wiper Stalks

In a recent trip to Bicol, I had difficulty switching between high and low beams because of a faulty signal stick (note: the correct term is stalk). In this video, I have demonstrated how to remove the left and right stalk assembly near the steering wheel, to access and clean the switches’ contacts. I have also shown how I tapped onto one of the contacts to convert the trip switch (the switch used to toggle the display) into a high beam flasher switch.

A simple cleaning of contacts fixed the signal stalk’s problem. Signal stalks under heavy use usually suffer from this problem.

Replacing EcoSport’s Rear Plate Light Bulb

I have recently replaced one of the bulbs that illuminate the rear registration plate of our EcoSport. While no tools are needed to replace the bulb, a flat head screw driver may be useful in prying out the light bulb assembly.  The stock bulbs (called T10 bulbs) are filament types which cost around 50 pesos or 1 US dollar per pair (more expensive LED type replacement “bulbs” are also available). Local traffic regulations require that the rear plate’s light bulb “shall render the number plate clearly visible at night.”

Repairing EcoSport’s Rear Door Actuator

This video demonstrates how to repair a damaged rear door lock actuator of an EcoSport,with a low-cost (250 pesos or 5 US dollars) generic actuator. In the video, I explained how to remove the stock actuator, mount the replacement generic actuator using cable ties, connect the wires for the power supply, and attach the lock-release cable to the arm of the actuator.
